Happy Aging Couple on Moped


One way to find happiness... Stop comparing yourself to others: Comparing yourself with others won’t do you any good. You will either feel proud when you are above, or feel jealous and frustrated when you are below. None of them brings true happiness. So stop comparing yourself with others and simply be your best.


Vaccination Adverse Reactions Removed from Nursing Manuals -WHY? It is a fact that all drugs and vaccinations have adverse reactions. There is no drug or vaccine that is 100% safe and until this year, this information was provided to all nurses and doctors in nursing manuals like “Mosbey’s Nursing Drug Reference.” This year, in a manual titled Nursing 2019 Drug Handbook, the authors have removed all references relating to contraindications to vaccines. By removing any reference to adverse reactions to vaccinations from their manual, the authors are denying the medical staff (who administer these vaccines) information that could potentially put the lives of their patients at risk. If nurses are administering vaccinations to their patients and they are completely unaware that these vaccinations can cause adverse reactions, then this practice contradicts the Montgomery ruling on informed consent. This purposely omitted information would be very convenient for any government wishing to implement mandatory vaccination for all.


Holiday Eating Tip: Ruin your appetite! Right before you leave the house, have a balanced snack. Something with protein and carbohydrates is best. Have some plain Greek yogurt with some berries in it. This allows you to be in control when you’re at holiday gatherings so you can be more discriminating when it comes to which foods you would will splurge on.


‘Tis the season for fun, family, friends… and stress! Increased amounts of sugar, financial obligations, parties, alcohol, etc. can all add to stress… especially to the central nervous system. The nervous system filters and processes stress and hormone related spikes. An improperly functioning central nervous system tends to become more compromised by sickness, fatigue, and general despair. Research has demonstrated a link between chiropractic adjustments and stress. The study showed that one adjustment improved blood plasma biomarkers linked to stress response. Blood samples were taken before, immediately after, and two hours after the spinal adjustment. The results showed that chiropractic improved hormones linked to reducing stress and pain in the body! This landmark study shows why chiropractic patients experience benefits beyond just back and neck pain relief. Chiropractic reduces stress in the nervous system and subsequently opens a doorway for better sleep, energy, healing, and function. Welcome the season by empowering the whole family with chiropractic care!


Brussels sprouts can provide you with some special cholesterol-lowering benefits if you use a steaming method when cooking them. The fiber-related components in Brussels sprouts do a better job of binding together with bile acids in your digestive tract when they've been steamed. When this binding process takes place, it's easier for bile acids to be excreted, and the result is a lowering of your cholesterol levels.
